She was literally the last of her kind at Eurovision 2016, placing 18th out of 18 in her semi-final.

But Rykka isn’t letting that hold her back for 2017. Following the release of her second album Beatitudes, the Canadian-Swiss star has just dropped the music video for her latest single “Runnin’ Away”.

Scroll down for video.

While Rykka went for a somewhat avant-garde approach on her previous release “Bad Boy“, she plays things safe here.

“Runnin’ Away” is easy listening from an artist who has made plenty of daring choices in her career.

There’s no sign of the crazy as she keeps things classy — she trades blue dye for floppy hats.

Nevertheless, it wouldn’t be Rykka without some dancing in an empty swimming pool.

The song’s bridge adds an interesting complexion to the song as Rykka throws in some spoken word. This gives the track’s pleasant but vanilla flavouring another dimension before she goes on to nail the final chorus.

Rykka Runnin’ Away (Official Music Video)

Following the release of “Map Inside“, Rykka has delivered well-produced and diverse music which continues to showcase her versatility.

With such a broad selection of music on offer, we’re eager to see what she’ll do next.

She is “Runnin’ Away” to her next destination and we’re chasing after.

What do y’all think? Let us know in the comments below.

Rykka Runnin’ Away lyrics

Let’s go
Hold on
I’m gonna be

We got ESP together
Baby you could read my mind
We gonna make we’ll be forever
Escape with you every night

‘Cause I know when you move to the sound
I can hear exactly what you say
Even when the music’s loud
I can hear you whisper

[CHORUS x2]
Hold on, I got the gold
Now we’re runnin’ away
I’m gonna be there for you
Nothing’s too good, live like we should
‘Cause we’re runnin’ away, runnin’ away

Hold on
Gonna be, gonna be

We’ll go E.T. together
Babe we gotta get back home
Heartbeat is a rhythm
Ribs they rise and fall

And I know when you move to the sound
I can feel exactly who you are
Even when the lights are down
I can see you quiver

I know when you move to the sound
I can hear exactly what you say
Even when the music’s loud
I can hear you whisper

[CHORUS x2]

Hands up
Don’t doubt
Liquor drip, drippin’ out
Are all those hands you lay pickin’ up?
Are all those eyes you see lookin’ out?
Word’s out
Word of mouth
Liquor drips what we make out
Are all those games you play working out?
Are all those hands you lay pickin’ up?

[CHORUS x4]

Runnin’ away (x3)
Let’s go

Wow, I enjoyed the song a lot. Yet I’m still wondering when she will stop weird-movements, those parts of video were quite horrid 🙂 Cool audio, pretty warming.

Eh, song not my cup of tea. Although I’ll give her points for being versatile.

Spent most of the video enjoying the nice shots of the countryside. Was trying to figure out where it was being shot in. Finally caught the license plate on the car- Zurich. So she’s still in Switzerland.

Be pretty cool if she came home and did a couple videos in BC. Breathtaking scenery up there.

For me she will always be the blue-haired girl with repetitive movements.
